Pasting outline to a layer

Can anyone teach me how to paste an outline to a layer?
Assume I have a copied path, and I want to paste it to all of the selected layers.

newPath = GSPath()

Same with the nodes that you might want to append to the newPath


and then append this path to your layer:


And so on.
